10th Commandment: June 14

Jun 14, 2013

I spent over three weeks fighting a cold that refused to die.  As a result, I spent several days on my couch, wearing sweatpants.  And I have two rules for wearing sweats: 1) unless you are on your way to or from the hospital/doctor, the sweatpants do not leave the house, and 2) make sure they look nice and lounge-y, not schlumpy and frumpy.

    I think it is acceptable to break the dont go out rule for exercise-I wear these-drapy ones-for my 2 mile daily walk-at 7am….. very few are around to see. Other than that I tend to agree with you-they are not really go out and be seen clothes.

  2. Joules says:

    I agree that exercise is a good reason, but otherwise I think these are better for home. Good choices! I have a pair from Target that’s actually really good fit/quality.

    I also leave the house in yoga pants or sweatpants to go to the gym. It’s 4 blocks from my apartment so rather than bringing clothes and changing at the gym, I just change at home and then walk over.

    $128 for lounge pants? Come on. Even if you have oodles of disposable income, why would you spend that much?

    Belle- going to be spending some solid hospital time with my parents over the summer. Looking for outfits that are warm, comfy, easy, and send a message of “oh hey cute resident, I’m single and obviously a good person since I’m taking care of my parents”. Love these pants for a start, but on top? Are scarves the answer?

  6. Belle says:

    Skip the sweat pants. You want jersey maxi dresses with a heavy material like the ones made by T-Bags. Add cardigans, scarves and jackets as needed. I wore leggings or long bicycle shorts under mine to fight off the AC. Hospitals are ALWAYS freezing.

    • Katy says:

      Maxi dresses! I feel like a jigsaw puzzle has just slipped into place. Thank you. Off to buy all the dresses.

    Belle, which are your favorites, the Dreamy or the Lotus?
